How To Care

When planting your Brown Turkey Fig tree be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant this Fig tree almost any time of the year.

Fig trees thrive in full sun and are adaptable to a variety of soils as long as they are well-draining. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for 3 months while your tree is establishing. After the establishment period, in most areas you will only need to water during dry spells. However, if you are in an extremely dry and/or hot climate, you may need to water a couple times per month in summer throughout your Fig tree's life. If you see wilting leaves, your Fig tree needs more water. Adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch is highly recommended for Fig trees. Mulching protects those shallow roots from drying out. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in spring to give your tree a boost. Choose a slow release, balanced fertilizer like the one we carry to feed your fig. Once established if your tree is growing and fruiting well, there is no need to fertilize. Figs trees grown in containers will need fertilized 3 or 4 times per year as nutrients leech out of the pot when you water. Prune your Fig in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches and to maintain size.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Scale and Mealy Bugs are insects that can affect Fig trees. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infestations you can use a pesticide like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Fig trees can encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire tree must be coated in order for this method to be effective.

Harvesting Tip: Do not harvest your figs until they are ripe indicated by a rich purple/brown hue and a fruit that has some give. Once picked, figs stop ripening. Figs also do great when grown in containers.

I've already ordered a 2nd tree.

This is the healthiest plant I've ever received from an on-line venue. I have already returned and made several other purchases.

Let's talk Turkey

My most recent experience at PlantingTree was excellent -- as it's always been in the past! In this latest shipment I bought a 1g Brown Turkey Fig. It arrived expertly packaged with a really tall (6ft?) Ginkgo tree in a tall slender box. It got here to Virginia in a short span of time (Wednesday?) after having placed the order over the weekend. More importantly it arrived healthy, green, vigorous and in all other manners -- intact! In the past I've also ordered flowering fruit trees, gumpo azaleas, shrubs, etc. and those experiences have been similar, which is to say excellent! I always check "PlantingTree" first when I need to order out for things that I can't find locally. Initially this was due to their geographical proximity, but lately more due to their excellent track record!
